Urban air particulates (suspended particles and settling dust), furthermore dust emitted by a Soderberg aluminum reduction plant and a coal burning power plant from an industrial town, Ajka (30,000 inhabitants) were analysed for PAH content (liquid chromatography) and mutagenicity (Salmonella microsome test). Air particulates from Papa--a town of similar(More)
Background. Candida species are the fourth leading cause of nosocomial bloodstream infections in the United States, however incidence is low and most patients who receive empiric treatment do not actually have candidemia. Unfortunately, detection, identification and susceptibility testing using standard instrumented blood culture systems and routine(More)
The strongly carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon 20-Methylcholanthrene was detected in the urban atmospheric air in Budapest (the capital of Hungary). The main source of this pollution seems to be the motor vehicle traffic, since samples from a heavy traffic junction contained up to six times higher 20-Methylcholanthrene concentrations than samples(More)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, the major air pollutants emitted by two aluminum reduction plants in Hungary, were measured in the emission dusts and in air particulates in nearby residential areas. There was a higher amount of PAHs in the emission dust of the plant operating with vertical stud anodes (plant "A") compared to the plant operating with(More)
Urban air particulates (suspended particles and settling dusts), as well as dusts emitted by a Söderberg aluminium production plant and a coal-burning power plant, in the industrial town of Ajka were analysed for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) content (liquid chromatography) and mutagenicity (Salmonella microsome test). The same parameters for air(More)
